Grandpa's Beef, Mushroom, and Barley Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I made some changes-I cooked stew meat in the crock pot with a package of brown gravy mix and 2 cups of water. Once that was about done, I cooked quick barley (1cup) according to the package directions. I put the barley, parsley, salt, etc all in the crock pot with the meat to finish for about an hour.

Nobody at our house really loved this soup. I don't think it is seasoned enough. I probably won't make it again.

This is an excellent recipe. I modified it a bit by using Marmite in the stock instead of beef stock and 3 veggie stock cubes with one cup of pearl barley and 6 cups of water. I used some scotch fillet I had in the freezer, added zucchini, carrots, swede and a parsnip to the recipe and put it all in the crockpot on high for 8 hours. The beef was even frozen. It is DIVINE. Absolutely divine, we're about to go and eat it but I've been sneaking bites. Oh and I used fresh picked field mushrooms as well, about 4 cups worth as they cook down to be quite small.

my family said it was the best soup I ever made. I cooked the meat a lot longer by it's self so it was really tender and I used fresh mushrooms. They can't wait til I make it again
